Money raised will go to the Alzheimer's society

Former Oasis drummer Alan White is to run this year’s Virgin London Marathon.

White, who drummed for Oasis from 1995 until 2004, is raising money for the Alzheimer’s society, and asking people to donate via his Justgiving page.

White has set a target of £2,000 to be raised in time for the April 25 run.

Since leaving Oasis, White has kept a relatively low profile, though he is currently playing in Trio Valore alongside brother (and fellow drummer) Steve White and ex-Ocean Colour Scene bassist Damon Minchella.
